Careers Fairs are a great way to connect and network with potential employers.
Our Spring Careers Fair takes place next week on Wednesday, 6 March with a wide range of employers looking to speak to students who will be graduating in summer 2019.
Here are our top 3 tips to help you prepare for the fair:
- Do your research – Register and find out who is attending. This will enable you to devise a plan of which recruiters to talk to first and where the employers are located. Look at the floorplan beforehand so that you can make a plan of attack to see each employer in order of interest.
- Think about what you’re going to say – Prepare questions to ask, and also anticipate questions you yourself may be asked. Try think of specific questions about the job and company as this shows you have a genuine interest in them.
- Attend a ‘Prepare for the Fair’ workshop – in the Careers Studio and Careers on Tour bus around campus this week. Pick up practical tips to help you make the most of attending the Careers Fair.
Drop in to see us in the Career Studio on University Square or look out for our pop-up Career Studio in the main foyer of the Rendall Building on Monday, 4 March 9:30am – 5:30pm.
